Climate Action Guidebook

Learn about climate change and how you can take part in building a climate-friendly future!

The Residents' Climate Action Guidebook.pdf [PDF - 2 MB] will help you:

  • find out how big your personal greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are using the Saanich Carbon Calculator
  • set your own climate target
  • make a plan to reduce your climate impact and prepare for our changing climate

This guidebook is a companion to the 2020 Climate Plan. Acting on climate change helps improve our health and well-being, protect our natural environment, save money, support clean energy jobs, and protect the quality of life for future generations.

Responding effectively to climate change requires everyone to work together, including residents, businesses, community organizations, institutions, neighbouring local governments and senior levels of government. The Guidebook is focused on what residents can do to help meet community-wide targets.
